In 2013, Green Cat Renewables Limited (GCR) started work on the planning for this single turbine project.
This is a very constrained site and was only possible by agreeing that normal noise limits at the clients own home could go beyond standard limits even for a financially interested property. This involved putting in place legal documents to ensure the turbine always stayed in the same ownership as the affected house. These agreements caused some unique challenges to the funding of the project as did clients requirement to minimise equity.
Working with the developer and the bank Close Brothers, GCR managed to help negotiate the finance for the project and structure finance terms that allowed the project to proceed.
This project came in on time and budget. The project has been successfully operating since September 2015.
